Six out of 10 people killed in Missouri traffic crashes are unbuckled. Even with all the advancements in automobile safety and education on the importance of seat belt use, Missouri’s seat belt use has remained relatively unchanged in the last six years and consistently below the national average.  Missouri has a 88.0 percent seat belt usage rate, which is well below the national average of 90.4 percent in 2021.

There's room to live in a vehicle crash if you're buckled up. Give yourself a chance. Always buckle up - everyone, every trip, every time.
